OTTAWA HERALD Pfcg* Pour Thursday, Feb. 7, 1963 Editorials Resisting Change Recently a Michigan publisher told us that his state would vote this spring on a new state constitution. "Boy, will we have a donnybrook," was his comment. And he went on to say that it was anybody's guess whether the new constitution would carry. The reason he summed up in three words, "People resist change." The constitution nroblem is one which also is faced in Kansas. Piecemeal efforts have been made over the years to chansre the constitution of Kansas. This has been by the amendment route. Unfortunately, however, the constitution itself resists change. It limits the number of amendments that can be voted upon in a state election to three. Kansans in the, last two elections have To Your Good Health voted on six amendments. Now, with the state legislature in session, other amendment proposals are being presented to the legislature for consideration in the next state election in the fall of 1964. Our state constitution, actually a wonderful document when it was drawn, is now outmoded. It was based on a horse and buggy era of the 19th century. We now are well advanced into the 20th century. In the light of changes made in recent decades, our constitution in practice is more than a century old. If the Republican party which controls Kansas is the partv of foresight and leadership it claims to be, it will take the necessary steps to bring about a revision 01 our constitution. Such a rewriting is long overdue. Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channels 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Thursday No Danger In Hot Flashes Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: I am 53, haven't menstruated for six years, and I still get hot flashes. I had a hysterectomy a few months ago and that didn't stop them. My doctor says it isn't from menopause. If I have to put up with them, I would like to know why. What are the causes?— B.S. I have been told that no mere man has any business talking about hot flashes because he doesn't experience them and therefore doesn't know what he is talking about. With this preface of humility, I'll try to answer. Hot flashes are a characteristic although not universal symptom of menopause or change of life. They are thought to be due to instability of the automatic control of blood vessels — a rush of blood through the surface blood vessels brings a sudden sensation of warmth. Hot flashes. They are not dangerous, any more than a blush is. But they can, I am sure, be upsetting. They bother some women a great deal, others very little. Both intensity and duration vary widely. This instability in blood vessel control apparently is due to the abrupt change in hormone balance which occurs at menopause. This explains the fact that giving hormones for a few months at this time helps prevent or minimize the hot flashes until the body has achieved a new equilibrium, hormonally speaking. We do note, however, that the nervous type of woman seems to have more trouble, and it lasts longer. Hence in some cases tranquilizers or mild sedatives are very helpful, without use of hormones. As a rule the hot flashes wane and disappear within a reasonable time but some women, and emotionally stable ones, too, report cessation when tiie "change" is over, only to have them recur later on. Fatigue, an emotional crisis, anxiety can trigger them it seems. Adquate rest can be important. In addition we know that hyperthyroidism (over-active thyroid) can be involved and that .this is more common after 50 than formerly had been supposed. Hence careful checking of the thyroid, along with seeing that there is no anemia, often pays dividends in curbing flashes when they occur after the usual time for them has passed. By jph This And That "Why should children be out of school three months each summer?" demands a columnist. How else can the teachers get the vacations to which they so long have been accustomed? Expecting a man to keep all the laws there are is a little too much to ask of one who is not completely sue cessful in keeping the Ten Commandments. JPH A four-months-old baby girl had died in a Fort Worth hospital as a result of her mother's beating her in a fit of rage. In three months more it will be Mother's Day again. Why worry about a $99 billion federal budget? It's only 49-cent dollars. Or are they still worth 40 cents? Perhaps the reason they don't build an architecturally appealing public building in Washington is that it would be so conspicuous in the midst of all of those big but drab marble halls. The etiquette books are hard up to keep pace with the times. Not a word of advice in any of them yet as to a suitable going-away gift for a man taking off for the moon. Friend of ours moans that he might have become a self-made man had his equipment included a self-starter. It ta ridiculous to say that today our nation fjhinds at the crossroads. It has entangled itself jif, a cloverleaf intersection and is circling in all Dear Dr. Molner: Please explain the faction of the spleen. If it is injured, is an operation necessary?—Mrs. B.W. The spleen is a lymphatic organ similar, for example, to the lymph glands under the chin. The purpose is to filter out unwanted materials in the blood stream. In the case of the spleen, so much blood flows through that a rupture of it can cause a person to bleed to death internally. The tissues are such that it is extremely difficult to sew up such a wound. However, the entire spleen can be removed and the blood vessels tied off, and there will be no trouble afterward. Not all injuries to the spleen necessarily mean a rupture. Dear Dr. Molner: What is the meaning of "respiratory failure" and "hydrocephalus," and what causes them?—Mrs. B.C. Respiratory failure means faulty operation of the lungs and their related and complex organs, which boils down to great difficulty in breathing. There are many causes. Hydrocephalus comes from "hydro" for water, and "cephalus" from the Greek word for "head." It means an excess accumulation of fluid in the brain. In young children the causes are not wholly clear, but enlargement of the head occurs, and finally the pressure more likely to be from acute infection, such as meningitis. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO John Higdon of east of Rantoul dropped a 15- gallon milk can on his foot, fracturing two bones in the foot. James Peckham of Rantoul was in Ottawa for treatment of an eye injury. Sawdust flew into his eye while he was working, causing severe scratches of the eyeball. Wayne Moberly of Richmond was among new students at University of Kansas, Lawrence, for the spring semester. 50 YEARS AGO Mrs. F. A. Marcell of Peet, Wise., a former Ot- tawan, was here for a visit with her son, R. C. Marcell and family. The water and light department of the city let a contract to Kansas City Machine Works for repairing of an engine at the plant. Trappers of the Ottawa area were meeting with success trapping minks. One of the veteran trappers of the area, H. C. Sehnert, recalled that a number of years before he had trapped a large mink. The hide measured 37 inches in length. Prayer For Today Whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. (Romans 15:4.) PRAYER: 0 God, set free our souls from all doubt and fear so that we may follow the guidance given to us in Thy Holy Word. Help us amid the storm and stress of life to find that peace which Thou alone canst give. Through Jesus Christ, our Redeemer. Amen.

Julie Is Marvelous As Cockney Miss By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP)-"Pygmalion," George Bernard Shaw's saucy period piece about making a lady out of Eliza Doolittle, was a beautifully acted and produced valentine from NBC to the nation Wednesday night. Miss Julie Harris, who seems perfect playing everything from a very young girl to an ancient queen, was marvelous as the suspicious cockney flower girl caught up reluctantly in an experiment in phonetics. She was beautiful as the finished product —an English lady. James Donald, as rude Professor Henry Higgins, invested his part with the casual brutality of Leslie Howard, instead of the waspishness Rex Harrison gave him. As in all the "Hall of Fame" programs, the 90-minute adaptation of the Shaw classic was notable for effective, subtle use of color. The ballroom scene was gorgeous. This season's unenthusiastic reception of the prime-time evening schedules of both NBC and ABC is expected to result in a drastic plowing up for next year which will uproot almost 50 percent of the current crop and mean shifts in time spots for many of the others. Some of the reshuffling under consideration involves ABC's "Wagon Train," perhaps lengthening it to 90 minutes and moving it out of head-on collision with NBC's "The Virginian." Jack Paar's hour is expected to shift to Thursday night, "Ben Casey" to Wednesdays and Mitch Miller to Mondays. And that's just the beginning. A number of old favorites may disappear, including "Dobie Gillis" and "Dennis the Menace," and along with more recent entries like "Sam Benedict." A shift in ABC scheduling which is closer at hand involves slipping re-runs of the old "Cheyenne Show" at the head of its Friday evening schedule. That starts April 12, when the Winston Churchill series of reruns is finished. "The Merv Griffin Show" office has so far received more than 9,000 letters protesting the cancellation of the show—and that doesn't include letters to the network or individual stations, or phone calls and telegrams. i Ottawa Roller Rink Public Sessions Wed. and Fri. 7:30 to 10:00 Sat. nights 8:00 to 11:00 Private Parties CH 2-9704 Mon., Tues. and Thurs.
